Children’s Privacy Policy

HJO Creations (“we” or “HJO”) is committed to protecting the privacy of children who use this website (the “Site”) and our products (the “products”). This children’s privacy policy (“Children’s Privacy Policy”) explains our information collection, disclosure, and parental consent practices with respect to information provided by children under the age of 13 (“child” or “children”), and uses terms that are defined in our general Privacy Policy.

HJO takes the privacy of the Site’s and product users very seriously. Accordingly, this policy aims to comply with requirements of the U.S. Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (“COPPA”) and the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”),. For more information about COPPA and general tips about protecting children’s online privacy, please visit OnGuard Online (http://www.onguardonline.gov/articles/0031-protecting-your-childs-privacy-online). We reserve the right to amend this Children’s Privacy Policy. Please check this page periodically for changes.

The information we collect from children and how we use it

Below we summarize potential instances of collection and outline how and when we will provide parental notice and/or seek parental consent. In any instance that we collect personal information from a child, we will retain that information only so long as reasonably necessary to fulfill the activity request or allow the child to continue to participate in the activity, and ensure the security of our users and our services, or as required by law. In the event we discover we have collected information from a child in a manner inconsistent with COPPA’s requirements, we will either delete the information or immediately seek the parent’s consent for that collection.

Registration

In certain cases, children can publish their highscore with a username to take a part in the associated activity.

During this process, we ask the child to provide a username for notification and recognition. HJO will not require a child to provide more information than is reasonably necessary in order to participate in the online activity.

About the collection of usernames: We will not use emails or store the username for a longer period of time.

Content Generated by a Child

Certain activities and applications on our site or applications allow children to upload their highscore. None of these activities require children to provide any personal information and therefore do not result in notice to the parent or require parental consent. We strongly advise children to never insert personal information in their created content.

Anonymous Information

When children interact with our products or services,  some information is collected.. Examples include the type of computer operating system, the user’s IP address or mobile device identifier, the web browser, the frequency with which the user visits various parts of our Site. You conscent that this information is collected by HJO or by a third party.

This data is principally used for internal purposes only, in order to:

  • determine usage patterns;
  • customize content and improve the Site; and
  • conduct research and analysis to address the performance of the Site.

Parental choices and controls

At any time, parents can refuse to permit us to collect further personal information from their children in association with a particular account or username, and can request that we delete from our records the personal information we have collected in connection with that account or username. Please keep in mind that a request to delete information may lead to deletion of an account and associated content, groups and challenges.

Where a child has registered for an account or username, we will delete the personally identifiable information that we have collected from their children:

Parents can contact HJO to request access to, change, or delete their child’s personal information by sending an email to us at: mail@hjocreations.com.

In any correspondence such as e-mail or mail, please include the child’s username.
